The ViaQuest Foundation was created for the purpose of helping people in the process of living, working, learning and participating fully in their communities.
Our mission is to work with people through the process of change through which individuals:
- Improve their health and wellness
- Live a self-directed life
- Strive to achieve their full potential
The ViaQuest Foundation supports people’s physical well-being through a continuum of care model. Navigating the maze of affordable, community based care is a difficult task. The ViaQuest Foundation is dedicated to helping ensure that everyone has the resources and knowledge to get the services they need. We provide guidance and referrals to quality Home Health and Hospice professionals that can provide skilled nursing, in-home physical therapy, occupational therapy, or medical social services.
The ViaQuest Foundation also supports a person’s emotional well-being and mental health. Coordination of care can be accessed with psychiatrists and counselors for preventable hospitalizations and management of acute behaviors in their home setting.
Four major dimensions of support in:
Make informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being.
Have a stable and safe place to live.
Engage in meaningful daily activities, such as a job or school, volunteering, caring for your family, or being creative. Work for independence, income, and resources to participate in society.
Build relationships and social networks that provide support.
Background and History
A not-for-profit organization, the ViaQuest Foundation was established in January 2005 to ensure that adolescents and young adults facing intellectual, emotional, and behavioral challenges receive the life skills necessary to achieve goals that many of us take for granted.
By developing innovative programs that provide enriching experiences and teach critical life skills, the ViaQuest Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that nothing holds our young people back from reaching such milestones as high school graduation, finding employment, and living independently. As a result of the ViaQuest Foundation, many of our participants are able to experience the life-affirming joy of playing a musical instrument, creating a piece of artwork, mastering a computer program, participating in a sport, or even attending their prom. These are just some of the creative, groundbreaking services and programs made possible by the ViaQuest Foundation.
